This is a recipe that I just got. I work with Jim and he brings this to our Diversity Council meetings, and it’s so good that the only word I can think to describe it is “heaven.” If I had a top 10 recipe list, this would go on it. Please try it or add it to your cookbook because it is great (not so slimming, but great! Trust me… worth the calories)! I’m not sure if it is supposed to be a breakfast item or a dessert, but I suppose it could go under either one.
